Journey to India!

From October 7th till November 14th 2022 I've been again for study and research in Kerala. I was able to repeat a good part of the story of Puḷindῑ Mōkṣam in Parayan Thuḷḷal with my Ashan Kalamandalam Prabhakaran and present it at Kerala Kalamandalam University within the 65th Anniversary Celebrations of the Department of Thuḷḷal on October 29th. Besides this I gave a little demonstration in German language as well.
